This recipe is called bitter gourd curry, garlic-chilli bitter gourd curry, etc.

Wash and slice the bitter gourd pieces into circular pieces

Then Remove the bigger seeds inside.

We have to prepare masala first

Then Heat the pan

Add 2 teaspoons coriander seeds and fry

Add 2 teaspoons sesame seeds and fry

Then Fry dried chillies till they change colour
